Lake Albina Ski Lodge was built overlooking Lake Albina in the Kosciuszko National Park of Australia, by The Ski Tourers Association, (later renamed The Australian Alpine Club).[1] In 1952 the first Albina Summer Slalom Cup was held, taking advantage of the seasonally unusual snow conditions.[2] Summer time ski events continued for at least another 3 years on either Mount Kosciuszko or Mount Townsend.[3] The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) required the club to vacate the lodge in 1969, and it gradually became a ruin. It was finally demolished by NPWS in 1983 .[citation needed]
